2 more new stones from Oklahoma

Post  NeilD3 on Sat Apr 04, 2009 4:27 pm

Hello All,
Thought I'd share a couple more stones I just found. Sorry for lack of size reference. My hand model was busy Laughing
The first stone is about 3.5-4 inches at it's widest point. The largest 2nd stone is about 7 inches.

Interested on you thoughts regarding best viewing point and how best to display either.
Thanks for looking.
Neil

Hi Neil... Hard, fine-grained & deeply-hued stones with contours that aren't cobble-rounded but weathered. Without knowing your geology, the stone quality appears ideal for suiseki collecting.

Thanks for sharing!

Chris,

It seems to me that there are stones to be found just about anywhere...you just have to look down and walk slow. Advice from an old timer I used to hunt arrowheads with back in central Illinois.

I missed positing a view of the first stone. To me this one seems the best.


Thoughts?

The fourth looks like a buddha, this angle is the best position for the shape. Very Happy
